About Us

Special Abilities of North Texas provides daytime support services to people with diagnoses including autism, Down syndrome, cerebral palsy, and other developmental disabilities. Our five focus areas are Vocational and Prevocational Training, Independent Living Skills, Creative Arts, Community Inclusion, and Health and Fitness. The program is designed to help clients achieve their goals while engaging in fun and meaningful activities. A different theme provides opportunities to practice skills in varying contexts each week. Clients and families report increased self-esteem, independence, and overall health while attending Special Abilities.

Ninety-five percent of the clients who attend Special Abilities do so without any out-of-pocket expense to their caregivers. Instead, we contract with Medicaid waiver providers to provide this essential service. On average, Special Abilities receives less than $24 per day per client that attends through Texas Medicaid waiver funding. As a nonprofit, we raise funds to combat the appallingly low reimbursement rates from the state so that our clients can have the support, supplies, and environment to help them succeed. 


To provide the highest quality care, training, and support to adults with developmental disabilities, giving them opportunities to succeed in life, family, and the community.

Special Abilities of North Texas is committed to a diverse, inclusive, and equitable environment where all clients, board members, staff, volunteers, and members feel respected and valued regardless of gender, age, race, ethnicity, national origin, sexual orientation, or identity, disability, education, or any other bias.
